When I put the kids to bed I usually sing them a lullaby. They've come to expect this, and I'm happy to oblige.
Bryan's musical talents lie outside of vocal music and so he doesn't sing to them at night. Except the other night, when he sang them "Row Row Row Your Boat." While I'm sure they expressed the appropriate amount of gratitude the night of, I heard a rather interesting review of his performance tonight while he was at hockey.
G: I want a nigh-night song.... please. (the "please" was a decided afterthought)
P: Yes, please sing us a song.
M: Which one?
G: Rock a Baby!
P: You know mom, daddy can't sing.
P: (very seriously) No mommy, it's not funny. It's just not good. Daddy just can't sing.
M: Well love, not everyone is good at singing. But daddy's good at a lot of other things.
P: Yeah. Like playing, but not singing.
